National Geographic Special on Jerusalem Brings Out the Hate

The Huffington Post published a splashy article in its Religion section about a National Geographic special on Jerusalem, and filled it with big, rich pictures of the city and its various sites. You should absolutely check it out, the pictures are great and the article describes the upcoming IMAX movie about Jerusalem in some detail.

Naturally, the HP readership refused to let the opportunity to rant about Israel pass them by, even though the article had nothing to do with politics or war. In fact, the word "Israel" isn't even mentioned in the article, which is pretty astonishing considering Jerusalem is in (or at a minimum controlled by) Israel. That didn't stop the hate from pouring out, though.
